In early oddsmaking for next year’s Super Bowl, Steelers tied for 8th-best chance

The uncertainty and turmoil seemingly surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers right now isn’t affecting their chances to win next year’s Super Bowl. At least, that’s what the bookmakers at BetOnline.ag say.

The site released its early odds to win Super Bowl LIV, to be played in February 2020 in South Florida. The four teams playing in Sunday’s conference championship games for this season join the Chicago Bears among the top five in odds to win next season’s Super Bowl.

But after those five (the Kansas City Chiefs, 7-to-1; Los Angeles Rams, 8-to-1; New Orleans Saints, 8-to-1; Chicago, 10-to-1; and New England Patriots, 10-to-1), only the Los Angeles Chargers (14-to-1) and Green Bay Packers (16-to-1) have better odds than the Steelers.

The Steelers join the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles at 18-to-1. Like the Steelers, the Vikings and Packers did not qualify for this season’s playoffs. The Eagles won last year’s Super Bowl.

The longest shot on the board? The Miami Dolphins at 100-to-1. Division rivals Cleveland Browns (25-to-1), Baltimore Ravens (33-to-1) and Cincinnati Bengals (66-to-1) all trail the Steelers.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
